I feel my privacy has been violated. This happened in Tampa Fl. I have Fibromyalgia and RA. I used to go to a Rheumatologist and was on drug tests bc my RA n Fibromyalgia is so bad. I also suffer from anxiety and depression so I go to a Psychiatrist.
I never gave consent. I always go to the doctor with my husband and that time my husband had his Harley with him. He is outraged as I'm.
Can he legally drug test me without my knowledge or a medical need? He had just taken blood and urine 4 months earlier.
In advance I thank you for your time and advice.
What did he *do* with the test results, or is the issue here simply that you didn't want him to know, or don't want to pay for the test? He should not have performed any medical procedure without your informed consent, but what are your damages? He also has an obligation to keep your medical information private. There are some narrow exceptions to both, sometimes involving drugs, but I don't see anything in your question to know if any apply.
You don't likely have a claim you can make. He took blood for the test? We're you aware ? If you were anesthetized you may have an assault claim. Check with a local
